Following their March 26 segment where Fox News’ Fox & Friends, co-hosts Brian Kilmeade and Gretchen Carlson hosted Michael Franzese, the former capo of La Cosa Nostra’s Colombo crime family, to discuss similarities in the way Democratic leaders and progressive figures are “operating,” Kilmeade and Carlson brought on Walter Schreiber. Schreiber, who had been instrumental in medical experiments on concentration camp inmates, was asked to discuss the Obama’s administration’s parallels to the Third Reich.
Kilmeade began the segment by asking, “So, is this a big stretch to think that, all of a sudden, Washington, D.C., has become our “Third Reich” and the Democrats, “the Nazi Party?”
Asked by Carlson what he would “call” Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, Read more
The writing should have been on the wall…and the teleprompter.
You know how the con works. The candidate ad-libs debate answers, dons a jacket and keeps laughter to a minimum. Then he gets elected president and BAM, he’s revealed for what he is…a teleprompter reading, jacketless, laugher..guy. And therefore someone we cannot trust. Or at least so says the Republican attack machine. This new president who promised us change, reads from a teleprompter. A fancy dan teleprompter nearly invisible to the TV viewers’ eyes. Thank God for mssrs Limbaugh and Hannity pointing it out for us…over and over. Do you call that change? Is it that much of a leap to believe he had to write much of what he read? What an insult to the nation. Reading what is wrote. Does my car mechanic read his repair instructions off a teleprompter? No. He left the plug off my oil pan, seizing up my engine all on his very own. If we have a president who can’t memorize his speeches how can we expect him to right the economy?
What’s next…laughing during Read more
“To call me a partisan hack is ludicrous. I am the least partisan person I know.” Tucker Carlson, (CNN’s Reliable Sources, 3/15/09)
And they say that conservatives don’t know satire. Oh, excuse me. Carlson is a Libertarian. A Libertarian is a conservative who wants to do standup. I know. I wrote the comedy material for the Libertarian presidential candidate, Bob Barr.
As part of his attempted comeback to pundit hilarity, the fired CNN co-host, fired MSNBC host, Tucker Carlson has hit the political cable and news circuit with a hysterical routine on Jon Stewart’s take on CNBC’s (and media-in-general) lack of oversight of big business and the stock market. I hated to give away his best punchline - “To call me a partisan hack is ludicrous. I am the least partisan person I know” - so soon, but when you have prime rib comedy you don’t save it for dessert.
I was waiting for Tucker to go Rodney Dangerfield.
“I tellya, Kurtz, I get no respect. No respect, I tellya.”
Tucker had plenty more bullets in his frivolity belt.
“Jon Stewart is a Read more
(Levittown, PA) Little 12 year old Billy Madison of Levittown, PA was sitting at his local Jubilee Lanes bowling alley sipping on a cherry cola, when he watched President Obama on The Tonight Show reference the Special Olympics in describing his bowling game.
“It was like the Special Olympics or something,” said the President.
Billy, known as “300″ to his friends, plans to enter this year’s Special Olympics, turned towards his mom, Dolly Madison of the Quincy Hollow section of Levittown.
“I want to bowl against the President, Mom.”
“First, I chuckled,” said Mrs. Madison, “Then, the more I thought about it, the more I looked into Billy’s eyes I realized he was serious. That’s when I decided to send off an email to the White House to challenge the President to a match with Billy.”
While his Mom didn’t expect the President to take him up on his challenge, early this morning, she received a response from the White House, agreeing Read more
(Left - Jon Stewart interviews Jim Cramer)
Has America gotten so callous that we no longer appreciate the fine art of securities fraud?
Am I the only one who’s sick and tired of having pundits and holier than thou’s demeaning the missteps of those who did what we all know we would have done if we were in their very expensive shoes?
It seems that everyone is taking some kid of perverted joy from watching these powerful entities fall. Folks, we’re only talking about money here. It’s not like anyone is dying, except maybe for those who are so distraught about losing their jobs, watching their pensions dissolve or their family fall apart, that they’ve swallowed a gun barrel. So what if there are those who have become so depressed that they’ve crawled into a chronic fetal position in bed, covers over their head, thumb tucked neatly in mouth, unable to face friends and family? Since when does being weak deserve our compassion? Isn’t that what Zoloft and funeral directors are for?
So shame on you, Jon Stewart. Shame on Read more
